Writing Requirement

The state of Florida requires that all undergraduate students complete a writing requirement.

All sections of qualified courses may not offer writing requirement credit in a particular term. The schedule of courses identifies the course sections and amount of writing credit (2000, 4000 or 6000 words) awarded for a given term in the 'Writing' property of the course listing.

The writing in such courses will be evaluated on content, organization and coherence, argument and support, style and mechanics. Evaluations will be on individual work and the evaluated work will be returned prior to the last day of class.

Writing course grades have two components. Professors will indicate whether students met the writing requirement AND will assign a course grade. Therefore, to receive writing credits students must receive a minimum grade of 'C' (2.0) AND satisfactory completion of the writing component. It is possible not to meet the writing requirement and still pass the class. Students should review their degree audits after receiving their grades to verify receipt of credit for the writing component.
